** Shortly prior to [[FallenAngel Luna's fall into darkness]], [[spoiler: [[EvilOverlord King Sombra]] imposed [[TheDarkTimes an evil reign]] upon [[CrystalSpiresAndTogas the Crystal]] [[ShiningCity Empire]], based around [[SlaveRace the enslavement]] [[SugarApocalypse of its entire population]], by becoming immensely powerful through the use of BlackMagic. The traps in [[OrcusOnHisThrone the castle he once occupied]] still hold great potency one thousand years later, and when he attempts to return, his evil magic has so consumed his nature that he takes the form of an [[AdvancingWallOfDoom advancing, disembodied force]] [[MadeOfEvil of malevolence]].]]

* ''{{Literature/Discworld}}'': Sourcerers essentially become these by virtue of being sources of magic, which is why wizards are forbidden to have children. Their power is so potent that they enhance the powers of the wizards around them and multiply their ambition to rule over everyone else. In fact, sourcerers were around during the early days of the disc and began the "Mage Wars" which nearly led to its destruction, due to the [[RealityWarper reality-warping]] nature of unleashing [[FantasticNuke raw weaponized magic]] which devastates everything.

* The ''Literature/FightingFantasy'' game books have no shortage of these. Chief among them are the Demonic Three, {{Card Carrying Villain}}s who studied the black arts together before going their separate ways to pursue world domination:
** Zagor, ruler of monsters in the [[ElaborateUndergroundBase vast cavern network]] beneath Firetop Mountain, who first [[CameBackWrong Comes Back Wrong]] to terrorize the countryside, then [[CameBackStrong returns again from death as a powerful demon]] to threaten the entire world.
** Balthus Dire, formidable MagicKnight, third in a line of thoroughly [[AristocratsAreEvil malevolent warlords]] ruling the local {{Mordor}}; evil enough to have a debilitating [[WeakenedByTheLight sunlight allergy]] normally only suffered by TheUndead.
** Zharradan Marr, master of inflicting PowerUpgradingDeformation; began his career with relatively PragmaticVillainy, developing gold mines to recruit his forces and expand his territory, then unleashed them on the world to pursue lost secrets of arcane power.

* In ''Film/InTheNameOfTheKing'', this is how Gallian is able to retain his magical abilities, while not actually serving a king (this appears to be a requirement for all magi). He explains that he uplifted the mindless Krug and made himself their king. Thus, by serving himself, he became this trope. His eventual goal is to crush all opposition and rule the world. Of course, it's stated that only Gallian's twisted mind could make this work.

Naturally, he is primarily opposed by {{Muggles}}, specifically [[Creator/JasonStatham Farmer]], who has no powers of his own but still kicks plenty of ass. His good counterpart is Merick, the magus serving the King of Ehb.

* Blackwolf in ''Film/{{Wizards}}'' turns a bunch of mutants and demons into an [[PuttingOnTheReich expy of Nazi Germany]], intentionally. His good brother Avatar could be a king but seems to be too lazy to be more than just a powerful wizard.
